It has been my honor to serve on your City Council since 2020, arguably some of Mercer Island's most challenging yet formative years. My achievements on Council demonstrate my commitment to working collaboratively with my colleagues and in the best interests of our community.


If re-elected, I will continue this commitment by working with City leadership to enhance public safety, support and protect our parks and open spaces, upgrade our water, sewer, facilities and road infrastructure, safeguard our fiscal sustainability, support MIYFS and implement our Climate Action Plan.  Islanders tell me daily how proud they are of our community, especially our parks, public safety, sustainability, and unifying events like Summer Celebration, all the things I have supported in my first term.  


I am proudly endorsed by: Mayor Salim Nice, Deputy Mayor David Rosenbaum, Councilmembers Lisa Anderl, Wendy Weiker, Former School Board President Ralph Jorgenson and many more current MI residents.

Occupation: Father, Small Business Owner.

As my daughter enters 5th grade this year, I am very optimistic about MI’s future.  When we visit our parks to swim or to walk with our dogs, when we visit our schools for a musical, cultural or scholastic event, when we shop at our great local stores or visit with our neighbors, we must look forward, not backward in order to improve on what so many have worked so hard to create for us.


As a parent involved both in my daughter’s class and school and within our community, I look forward dedicating my time to an even more improved Mercer Island, and to speaking to each and every one of you with any questions about my further efforts on behalf of our community and our future on Mercer Island, and I ask for your vote.  See you around our island! I eagryly anticipate meeting and chatting.
